Named for two of the early pioneer families who homesteaded here, the courses were first dreamed of by the Campbell Family in 2008 to help create a new stable economic base for Frontier Oregon. The following year, Dan Hixson, a noted Northwest golf course architect, was selected to join the team to design and build the second world class-reversible 18-hole course in the world (the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland was first).
The course direction is reversed each day to create a different layout with a variety of pin placements and tee box options, creating thousands of unique rounds. While the course is free of water hazards, there are over a hundred bunkers incorporated into the course design.
Like designers of old, Dan also led the team that actually built the courses every day and he, himself, made every design decision, no matter how small. The Campbell Family provided the place, the water, the equipment, and the resources.
